ABC News - KVIA-TV, TX, U.S.A. October 5, 2005

EL PASO, TX. [U.S.A.] - An El Paso school teacher faces another criminal complaint in New Mexico, which means she's now been charged six times. ABC-7 has learned that Las Cruces Police have again arrested 52-year-old Donna McKnight for alleged sexual misconduct with a 14-year-old boy.

Ms. McKnight was previously charged with one count of Criminal Sexual Penetration, one count of Criminal Sexual Contact, and two other related charges in Dona Ana County. She was also charged with one count of Indecency with a Child by exposure in El Paso County.

ABC-7 first covered the story in August when the boy's mother told police her son had been abused by Donna McKnight, and that McKnight's husband, Ronald, tried to bribe him to keep quiet about it.

The incidents allegedly happened in Chaparral, New Mexico. Ms. McKnight is now in the Dona Ana County Detention Center under a $150,000 bond.
